"The essence of the knowledge of the Vedas was called by the name of vedanta, which comprises the Upanishads. Strength, strength it what the Upanishads speak to me from every page. Therein lies strength enough to invigorate the whole world. They will call with trumpet voice upon the weak, the miserable, and the downtrodden of all races, all creeds, and all sects, to stand on their feet and be free. Freedom, physical freedom, mental freedom, and spiritual freedom are the watchwords of the Upanishads. The Upanishads are the Bible of India." - Swami Vivekananda.
This book presents a lucid exposition of select portions of this Upanishad in the light of modern thought and modern needs. The Revered Swami has done this by freely drawing from contemporary scientific thought, biology and physics, and by laying stress on the relevance of Vedantic ideas to these areas of modern thought.
